We’re undertaking a major programme of campus development, with new buildings planned and being constructed for student accommodation, learning and social activities.
Although our contractors keep disruption to a minimum, noise and dust can affect flats in surrounding buildings from time to time. For example, construction works are scheduled to continue alongside Brighthelm, Swanborough and some areas of East Slope.
Pending planning permission for our proposed West Slope development, we will also be demolishing a number of student residences in summer 2020 and this demolition work may cause some noise and dust. There will also be some maintenance work taking place on campus.
Contact us before booking if you have any queries about these works.
Brighton is an exciting holiday destination with a range of tourist attractions. There is a vibrant night life, a range of restaurants and cafes, and events and festivals throughout the summer. Find out more about Brighton & Hove.
Our campus is surrounded by the beautiful South Downs National Park. Many of our buildings are listed and were designed by the architect Sir Basil Spence in the 1960s. Find out more about the Sussex campus.
